Long-Term Exposure to Road Traffic Noise and Nitrogen Dioxide and Risk of Heart Failure: A Cohort Study

Conclusions: Long-term exposure to NO2 and road traffic noise was associated with higher risk of heart failure, mainly among men, in both single- and two-pollutant models. High exposure to both pollutants was associated with highest risk. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1272 Received: 25 October 2016 Revised: 09 August 2017 Accepted: 09 August 2017 Published: 26 September 2017 Address correspondence to M.

HamillAbstractThe aim of this study was to calibrate chemometric models to predict beef M. longissimus thoracis et lumborum (LTL) sensory and textural values using visible-near infrared (VISNIR) spectroscopy. Spectra were collected on the cut surface of LTL steaks both on-line and off-line. Cooked LTL steaks were analysed by a trained beef sensory panel as well as undergoing WBSF analysis. The best coefficients of determination of cross validation (R...

Twenty communities were selected from the study area using a stratified sampling technique. Twenty-four-hour dietary recall, focus group discussion (FGD) and a 3-day weighed food intake conducted in each of the selected communities were used to collect the data, which were analyzed using percentages, mean...

This study focused on investigating quality changes of thermally processed kale purée using an integrated targeted and untargeted approach. Low, medium, and high processing intensities (carried out at 70, 90, and 128 °C) were selected based on predetermined shelf-life targets: frozen-thawed, refrigerated, and ambient storage, respectively. The results show that that physicochemical properties determining consumer acceptability were largely dependent on the treatment intensity. The high intensity treatment resulted in the least favorable quality characteristics (distinct brown color, chlorophyll and vitamin C d...

In this study, we determined the impacts of growth pattern to the end of the mating period and sire genetics on the reproductive performance of Merino ewe lambs. Five hundred ewe lambs with full pedigree records were managed under commercial conditions from weaning and weighed 43.5 kg at the start of the mating period with an average age of 224 days. The ewe lambs were offered a moderate or high feed allowance to achieve target growth rates of 100 or 200 g/day during a 46-day mating period. They were then recombined and scanned for pregnancy status 60 days after the mating period. At the individual animal lev...

Conclusions: High screen time was the most prevalent lifestyle risk behavior independently associated with depressive symptoms. Multiple lifestyle changes and improvement of appearance satisfaction should be included in measures targeting adolescents for the prevention and treatment of depressive symptoms. Future studies should elaborate on the gender differences in other adolescent age groups. Appearance satisfaction should be acknowledged as an important confounder in future studies of lifestyle and depressive symptoms. PMID: 31419392 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2019Source: Sensors and Actuators A: PhysicalAuthor(s): Weina Liu, Xinwei Yang, Youtian Niu, Haoran SunAbstractIn this paper, a sub-wavelength resonance sensor is proposed to microwave detection applications. A meta-material element—multiple split ring resonator (MSRR) is used to improve the sensitivity of the sensor. Therefore, the sensor is based on micro-strip technology and consists of a micro-strip and a MSRR. It is observed that the strongest electric field of the sensor can achieve to 105V/m. So the sensor is very sensitive to capture changes of dielectric signals. ...
